Experimentation is key.
When it comes to special effects, a quality mixture of costuming, clever camera work, editing, and green screen is essential. If you rely solely on green screen, it can give your film an air of artificiality. On the other side of the coin, if your practical effects aren’t believable, they can look worse than a green screen. The goal is synthesis. You want to incorporate as many different camera tricks, physical terrain and scenery, and different forms of special effects as possible to build convincing depth into your footage.
“The more effects you add of different types, the more believable each individual effect is because the human mind can only process so much information,” says Bernstein. “The quality of individual provisions are crucial to the believability of an image.”
When you work on your film projects, create a variety of different effects and blend them with the cinematography, sound design, and editing to create a seamless and entrancing combination of techniques that we call movie magic. Premiere Pro makes this possible — start exploring how.
